2. Application of Homotopy Perturbation Method to One-dimensional Transient Single-phase EM Heating Model

Hossein Fazeli; Shahin Kord

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2013, , Pages 20-33


  Thermal recovery involves well-known processes such as steam injection (cyclic steam stimulation, steam drive, and steam-assisted gravity drainage), in situ combustion, and a more recent technique that consists of heating the reservoir with electrical energy. When high frequency is used for heating, ...  Read More
